With 52 percent of voters in the “Brexit” referendum in favor of leaving the EU, the world woke up last Friday to a new geopolitical reality which some have compared to the day after the fall of the Berlin Wall.
The vote rattled global stock markets, generating sharp declines in major indexes, with the price of gold and silver seeing dramatic increases.
At the same time, Eurosceptics and far-right parties across Europe welcomed the results, seeing a boon to their domestic political fortunes. Moscow seems to view the referendum as having a positive impact on its global position, anticipating a boon in relations with an EU now dominated by Germany.
Wikistrat provides in-depth analysis of the consequences of Brexit, including for Germany, the Netherlands, NATO, Russia and China.
